LeMond Composites is the world’s newest carbon fiber manufacturing company that will revolutionize the lightweight composites industry throughout the world and it’s happening now.
A material consisting of thin, strong crystalline filaments of carbon, used as a strengthening material, especially in resins and ceramics. Approximately 90% of carbon fibers produced are made from polyacrylonitrile (PAN). The remaining 10% are made from rayon or petroleum pitch. All of these materials are organic polymers, characterized by long strings of molecules bound together by carbon atoms.
LeMond Composites offers solutions for high volume, low cost carbon fiber. By using cutting-edge technologies, LeMond Composites will make carbon fiber accessible accross multiple markets and industries worldwide.
